Government Claims Hackers Shut Down Biggest Gasoline Pipeline in the US, Gives No Explanation
Andrew Anglin, Daily Stormer, May 10 2021

Wait, what?

Per Bloomberg:

The operator of the biggest gasoline pipeline in the US shut down operations late Friday following a ransomware attack that threatens to roil energy markets and upend the supply of gas and diesel to the East Coast. Colonial Pipeline said in a statement Saturday that it “proactively took certain systems offline to contain the threat, which has temporarily halted all pipeline operations, and affected some of our IT systems.” It’s working to get business back to normal. The cybersecurity firm FireEye said its Mandiant incident response division is assisting with the investigation. Biden was briefed on the incident Saturday morning, the White House said. Colonial is a key artery for the eastern half of the US. It’s the main source of gasoline, diesel and jet fuel for the East Coast with capacity of about 2.5mb/d on its system from Houston as far as North Carolina, and another 900kb/d to New York.

They’re saying it is going to cause gas stations to run dry. Per USA Today:

A ransomware attack on a major US energy pipeline is threatening to leave some gas stations in the Southeast without fuel. If it’s not solved quickly, stations that rely on the Colonial Pipeline could begin running short within days, says Patrick DeHaan, head of petroleum analysis at fuel-savings app GasBuddy, which tracks prices and outages. He said: “Nobody is out yet, but we’re probably right on the cusp. Today, tomorrow, especially Wednesday, you’re going to see some outages.” Still, he urged drivers not to panic in states along the Gulf and southeastern Atlantic coasts … Don’t “go out and hoard gasoline and make the problem much worse,” he says.

Whenever the media tells people not to hoard something it sounds like they’re encouraging hoarding. Per The Hill:

The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration on Sunday issued a regional emergency declaration in 17 states and the District of Columbia in response to the shutdown of one of the largest pipelines in the US, which supplies around 45% of fuel consumed by the East Coast.The regional emergency declaration from the Dept of Transportation lifts restrictions for motor carriers and drivers who are providing assistance to areas that are suffering a shortages of “gasoline, diesel, jet fuel, and other refined petroleum products” in the wake of the Colonial pipeline shutdown. The regional emergency declaration affects the following territories: Alabama, Arkansas, the District of Columbia, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Maryland, Mississippi, New Jersey, New York, North Carolina, Pennsylvania, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas and Virginia.

I don’t really understand how it is possible for a pipeline to be shut down by ransomware. Well, I believe that it is possible in theory; they are probably running Windows that is not updated and their employees are probably downloading porn on system computers. But logistically, I don’t understand how the entire functionality of the system would all be linked to the same system. Furthermore, I can’t imagine that anyone would be this bold. This is serious business. Anyone who did this would be caught. They even caught the Fappening guy. And he was just one guy. No real criminal hacker organization would risk doing straight-up ransomwear on the US infrastructure like this. And listen: there are zero details. At time of writing, this was announced nearly 24 hours ago, and there is nothing. They just say the pipeline was shut down and it’s going to cause a gas shortage.

So basically: I think this is fake. I think it is done by the government, as part of an agenda to prepare some new grand crisis. If you don’t believe that is very likely, just go type the term “cyber pandemic” into any search engine, and then try to figure out why all of these organizations would be talking about this concept. Just go ahead and ask me what item relevant to this discussion was on the Davos 2021 agenda. Just ask me that. Anglin, what was on the Davos 2021 agenda?

Then, ask me how many times the term “cyber pandemic” (in quotes) appears on the WEF website.

As early as 2012, this term was being used.

They were saying that the next big thing was going to be a global SARS pandemic, but that there was also going to be a cyber pandemic to shut down the internet. Here’s a report from Yahoo! Finance on one of the 2021 panel discussions where an Israeli security expert claimed that the cyber pandemic was on the way:

Leading IT experts have warned much of the world is not prepared for major cyber attacks, risking severe economic disruption. The World Economic Forum (WEF) has compared the risks to the coronavirus crisis, organising a panel event on “averting a cyber pandemic” at its virtual Davos Agenda summit of global leaders this week. Panelist Gil Shwed, CEO of US-Israeli IT security company Check Point Software Technologies (CHKP), said on Thursday: “I don’t know if I would call it a cyber pandemic, because it doesn’t stop our life like the biological pandemic that we have. But were definitely under massive attack every day from multiple sources. On the one hand we’re seeing these attacks are quite successful; on the other hand we are fighting them, and it doesn’t stop the entire economy at that moment. But what we know is that can happen, that can turn into a cyber pandemic like the biological pandemic.” … He said the latest “fifth generation” of cyber attacks were hard to detect, saying they were “like the coronavirus, but with every attack a new mutation.”

If you haven’t gotten the point yet: these people talk about things that they are planning in terms of “risks.” Therefore, they talked endlessly about the “risk” of a global SARS pandemic, then all of the sudden you had this fake pandemic. The fact that they have talked endlessly about a global “cyber pandemic” means that this also too was planned. Just because they plan something doesn’t mean they actually do it. This is all real-time, and things are worked out as they need them to be worked out to fit with the agenda. But the fact that this was an Agenda Item this year at Davos is pretty indicative that it is something they were going to push. Now ask yourself: what would happen if the internet (technically probably just the Western internet) was totally shut down? How would that effect the police state agenda, do you think?

Do you think for example that people could be rounded up and put in camps, if the internet was turned off? Could they start drafting people to go fight a war against Russia and/or China?

You can call me a kook, or not. It doesn’t matter. What matters is whether or not they are literally going to declare a “cyber pandemic” and start shutting off consumer internet access. If this is happening, what you’re going to see is a wave of these “ransomware attacks,” and then they’ll start feeding you prep material for what comes next, leading into an internet shutdown of some kind. It will not happen all of the sudden. It will be like the coronavirus thing. There will be a prep period. There is one thing that is clear, which no one can deny: the people who are in power can presently do whatever the hell they want, and there is no one that can stop them, save Jesus Himself.

Biden says ‘no evidence’ Russia responsible for pipeline cyberattack … but Russia has ‘some responsibility’
RT.com, May 10 2021

A cyberattack that crippled the US fuel supply wasn’t the work of Russia, President Joe Biden said. Confusingly, Biden then said that Russia bears “some responsibility” for the attack. A ransomware attack on Friday shut down a gasoline and diesel pipeline running 5,500 miles along the entire US East Coast. Operated by the Colonial Pipeline Company, the vital fuel artery normally transits 100m gallons per day from Texas all the way to New York. The Biden administration responded by invoking emergency powers to enable truckers to transport more fuel, as traders scrambled to import fuel by sea from Europe. Addressing the attack on Monday, Biden initially threw cold water on the claims of Russian involvement, instead blaming “transnational criminals.” Biden told reporters:

So far there’s no evidence from our intelligence people that Russia is involved. Although there’s evidence the actor’s ransomware is in Russia. They have some responsibility to deal with this.

Rumors of Russian involvement were stoked by several mainstream media outlets over the weekend, after it emerged that ‘DarkSide,’ a criminal hacking organization believed by CNN’s anonymous sources to be based in “a Russian-speaking country,” was responsible for the attack. In a short statement on Monday, the FBI confirmed “that the DarkSide ransomware is responsible for the compromise of the Colonial Pipeline networks.” Other media outlets took the opportunity to link the hackers to the Russian government, “whether they work for the state or not,” in the words of one cyber-security consultant to NBC. Biden said that he will discuss the attack with Putin when the pair meet face to face. Though a meeting date is still being hashed out, Biden has previously expressed confidence that he will meet his Russian counterpart sometime in June, possibly during Biden’s visit to Europe for the G7 summit that month.

Ransomware attackers typically encrypt a company’s data, locking the firm out of its own systems until a ransom is paid. It is still unclear whether the Colonial Pipeline Company intends to pay its hackers. Speaking at the same White House press conference on Monday, Anne Neuberger, the deputy national security adviser for cyber, said that the decision whether to pay or not “is a private-sector decision and the administration has not offered further advice at this time.” Colonial said on Monday that it is working on “a return to service in a phased approach.” As of Sunday, service had only been restored to a few small “lateral lines,” with four ‘mainlines’ still shut off. The continuing outage has sparked fears that gas prices may soar past $3 per gallon. As of Monday, the national average price per gallon of gasoline stood at $2.97, a 60% increase from a year ago, when the coronavirus pandemic suppressed prices.

Irrefutable evidence of Russia’s involvement in the attack on the American pipeline

Overwhelming evidence of an attack on the pipeline
RIA.ru, May 10 2021

The hacker attack on the systems of the American pipeline operator Colonial Pipeline could have been carried out by people connected with Russia, a former cyber-security official reports to CNN. According to the channel’s interlocutor, the cyberattack was probably carried out by the DarkSide group, which usually allegedly carries out attacks against non-Russian-speaking countries. The opinion about the possible connection of hackers with Russia was expressed, including by NBC News sources. According to their version, the attack was not carried out by the country itself; it was carried out by hackers as part of a “criminal scheme.” Colonial Pipeline previously said it was undergoing a cyber-attack. As a result, the company shut down some systems “to contain a threat that temporarily halted all operations related to the pipeline and affected some information systems.” According to media reports, the cyberattack was carried out using ransomware. In particular, Bloomberg reported that attackers from the DarkSide criminal group, who managed to steal one hundred gigabytes of Colonial Pipeline data, could be behind the attack. The US authorities have declared a regional emergency due to the suspension of the company.

Components of the evidence base:

  1. Could have done (or might not have done)
  2. Probably done (or not done)
  3. Usually allegedly does (or unusually does not)
  4. With respect to non-Russian-speaking countries (and suddenly, in relation to Russian-speaking ?!)
  5. On the possible connection of hackers with Russia (or with the Tonga Islands)
  6. The attack was not carried out by the country itself (but it could have been committed)
  7. The attackers could have stood (or might not have stood)

In general, an excellent level of argumentation, everything is as we love … And a little more Czech chutzpah, via Life.ru:

The Czech Republic intends to demand from Russia about one billion kroons (almost 47.5 million dollars) in compensation due to the explosions that happened at the ammunition depots in Vrbetica, in which the republic suspects the special services of the Russian Federation. This was stated by the Minister of Finance of the country Alena Shillerova. She said on Czech Television: “The most appropriate solution to the issue is to claim compensation in accordance with international law. If we go through, for example, compensation for damages in criminal proceedings, it will take a long time.” However, even the named amount can be increased if the affected region demands additional compensation. At the same time, several Czech politicians have already noted that there are few chances to get money from the country.

  1. We have secret evidence, but we will not show it to you.
  2. In general, there are different versions, but those who doubt the only correct one are the Kremlin’s agents and traitors.
  3. We want money, but we are unlikely to get it.
